Monitoring Absences

Dear Parents,


As we enter our 8th week of school, we have started the process of monitoring absences a bit closer, both online and in-person. The purpose is primarily to ensure that students are attending classes and engaging in their learning.


Please know that if we see multiple unexcused absences within a week or long-term trends, you will receive a simple email from the Secondary office outlining the number of absences your child has had within a specific time frame. This email is purely informational and no consequences are attached. However, we would appreciate you having a conversation with your son/daughter to gain a deeper understanding of the absences and explore strategies together to help reduce unexcused absences.


If your son/daughter is absent, you should proactively access the Managebac parent profile and mark them excused. Here is a tutorial on how to do this. If you do not do this, their absence will be unexcused.


Thank you for your support of this initiative. If you have any questions or need help, please reach out to Annaro@faculty.isd.sn.
